Cyber Cafe

To create a young people's 'day centre' space for young people referred to our hospice service. Young people with life limiting illnesses are living longer and are now increasingly referred into adult hospice care. We would like to create a facility in our centre that they can enjoy.

Situation

Many young people facing life limiting illnessess are now living longer and being referred into adult hospice care. The challenge for us is to create environments that young people want to be in. Because most of our care has traditionally been for older people, our centre and facilities appear very traditional and do not appeal to young people. Additionally, our day centre services are used almost exclusively by older people, so younger patients are put off attending regularly.

Solution

Our project seeks to revamp one of our day centre rooms to become a 'cyber cafe' - a space for young people to come to instead of 'day centre' and to meet other young people facing life limiting illnesses. We would like to install internet, film & music making facilities as well as creative art facilities and 'chill out' space including soft furnishings and tea / coffee etc and ensure suitable accessibility for those in wheelchairs
